St. Anthony’s expansion, which began in 2020, will add approximately 143,000 square feet to the hospital’s campus. The tower project is part of a multi-year expansion, renovation and relocation of hospital services. The hospital is licensed for 448 beds.
The $152 million patient tower features spacious rooms to help make patients feel at home. In addition, the project includes expansion, renovation and relocation of hospital services, including:
- non-invasive cardiology
- pre-admission testing for surgical patients
- three additional surgical suites
- inpatient dialysis
- new electrical plant
- new classrooms
- expanded loading dock
- cafeteria and kitchen.
The completion of the tower also marks the return of the hospital’s main entrance, which includes a covered drop-off area for weatherproof convenience.
St. Anthony’s will relocate patient units and services into the new building on a rotating schedule in the upcoming weeks. Then renovations will begin in those vacated spaces. More construction is planned near the hospital’s emergency center during the remainder of the year.
